Revenge Fic: The World is a Fist  
Posted to revenge_tv

Title: The World is a Fist
Pairing/Characters: Emily
Rating: PG13
Spoilers: 1x01-1x08
Summary: Emily's thoughts on the dock with the photograph
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ

It's quiet out here at the end of the dock, peaceful. At least she remembers it that way. Emily hasn't known peace since she left this house for the first time. Her gaze automatically goes to the absurdly huge mansion down the beach from her more approachably sized beach house. As with each time she does, the anger wells up inside her, hatred for the people who stole her father and her life never quelling, never quieting.

Revenge is the air she breathes now; it taints the salty ocean breeze bitter.

The photograph in her hands is just today's problem, as if she doesn't have enough going on to have the real Emily intruding on her plans and screwing them up. She can't deny that she's glad to have Frank and his threats out of the picture, but now the police are involved and she's made sure, in all her machinations, that she stay far from their radar.

Sisters - that's what they were to the real Emily. This Emily knew better. Sun Tzu said keep your friends close and your enemies closer. And what way to keep your enemies close and happy than to become the thing they wanted most: someone to love them.

Real Emily's mug shot burns partway in her hand before she consigns the remainder to the sea where it will degrade, dissipate and cause no more ills. For now she's got Victoria to manage, Daniel to keep busy and Nolan to delegate to. Tomorrow's a big day, but then every day in the Hamptons is a work day for the woman who used to be Amanda Clarke.

New fandom!

I'm up to something like 26 now - it's crazy! I actually just finished my mission of writing at least one fic per fandom for the year and I had one slot open I didn't know what to do with. Thus finally writing my fave new show of the Fall season! If you're not watching it, why not? Sexy people! Devious manipulation! (Oh, wait that's normal for the Hamptons.) Evil twins? How about it's just smartly written, well cast and draws you into the intrique? Bonus, not just canon slash, but canon bisexuality! (Kinsey scale FTW!)

Title from the lyrics to the Verve Pipe song Photograph which was in my head when I woke up today.

When i'm alone and the world is a fist, I am weightless
A universe, gravitate, orchestrates, well I am fearless
And spin, the sky surrounding free from all the picture perfect
And spin the sky surrounding, larger than life, meanwhile
I'm in the photograph

I rather think if someone's hell bent on revenge they would view the world as a fist: ready to punch them so they're more than ready to punch right back.
